June, what a blast! If I can remember it… Let’s see, I ended May with a scifi convention, called BayCon. A day spent chatting with a writer friend and gaping at amazing costumes. Nothing better than that!
I met and hired a publicist who is asbatshit crazy over the movie 1776, the Musical, as I am. Yup, sitting in a Menlo Park Starbucks quoting song lyrics back and forth at each other. Kismet!
A few weeks later I was at the Northern California Pirate Festival…gaping at the amazing costumes. ;-)
Sensing a theme here… I also added to my new pirate hat and posed with a kraken eating a ship. Good time!
Then I spend a Sunday watching race cars at Sonoma…and my driver did good! Came in third! Whoohoo! (No gaping at costumes here, though what some people wear to the races…well…I really have no room to talk…)
July? Family stuff and a wonderful pool party at my Dad’s where the little ones were the stars of the show, rightly so. I have no little ones of my own, but watching the great nieces and nephews kept me grinning most of the day. Not to mention the nieces and nephews playing with all the greats…
Six more weeks to go! It actually looks a little slow on my calendar, but then fall kicks in and I’m off the races again!
